Route Climbed: South East Ridge, descent by East Slopes Date Climbed: October 10, 2004  Sucess!

Very direct, strenuous tallus climb with exciting exposure near the top. Not as bad as the North Ridge of Neva, but the crux notch is certainly greater than third class, especially with 8" of snow. Summit view is spectacular and well worth the effort. Great trip in fantastic fall weather.

Spectacular views of Indian Peaks after the dusting of snow the previous weekend. The rugged mountains looked particularly dramatic.

Route Climbed: Brainard Lake Date Climbed: Wed Sept 1, 2004  Sucess!

No summit register and no USGS marker (that I could find) but the disappointment stops there. Awesome, swathing (is that a word?) view of pretty much all of southern RMNP plus Longs' south face, the Never Summer Range, Lake Granby, and the spiky northern Indian Peaks. This is a popular place, but patience rewarded me with some quality solo-summit time. Next time I bring a buddy and we try the Paiute-Audubon Traverse, it looks airy and exciting!

Outstanding views of the Longs massif and the Apache massif. Went ahead and got the high point to the north while I was there, Roach's 'Notabon'.

Climbed Audubon as part of my own personal challenge to cover the whole ridge from Audubon, Paiute, Toll, Pawnee, and Little Pawnee in a day. Was a great trip (see my tripreport for more information). I covered every highpoint along the ridge and thus went up Mount "Notabon" (see Roach) as well as several smaller high-points along the way. -- Great views of Longs peak from the whole ridge!

My first alpine summit! It hurt, but we had been hiking in the Flatirons in previous weeks, so we were somewhat prepared.... I look back at pictures and wince at the clothes I was wearing! Ouch!

Climbed this mountain with the Boulder Mountain Club. They paced too slow for my taste. Bunch of slackers! At least there is class 2 stuff towards the summit. I liked the prayer flags at the top, giving it a nice Himalayan feel.

Very cold two night solo camping trip.



There are quite a few photos available here:

I had a few days free, and for some reason chose to spend them freezing my butt off alone in the snow... I took three days and two nights to summit Mt. Audubon(13,224 ft) alone. The trip was great, except I forgot to bring sunscreen and my sleeping pad. I had to use branches from nearby trees for insulation!





The climb itself went well. I started out early, hoping for the good weather to hold. Although it was extremely windy, I managed to make the summit by noon. At the summit, I was sure I was about to be blown off the mountain. Seven hours later, I returned to camp for a much needed nap.

Great warm up climb for a fourteener. This hike gave me a good scouting report on the iced up south slopes of Long's Peak.

A nice summit. Combined well with Paiute Peak. My dog Sopris was along with me on this traverse.



I had previously attemted Mount Audubon in Febuary of 2001. I got caught in a little blizzard on that try and turned around some 300 feet feom the summit (above the head of the eastern cirque).

Really nice day hike with fantastic views of the surrounding peaks. The mountain by itself doesn't have much going for it but the views around it are incredible.



Be prepared for wind on this peak. There must have a steady 30mph wind going when I got to the summit and it seems like every time I'm in the area the wind is blowing hard.
